My Mom Won't Pass It Along Without More Content

So now that I am blogging, I figure I better get to it. Create some gripping, irreverent and/or stirring, relevant content to generate some e-buzz. Or at least an e-hum.

And besides, my mom said she will send it along to her friends and peers when I get some more posts up.

So here goes.

A tip from an inspiring bag of tea. Last night I took notice of the little paper square that was attached to my Honest Tea string/bag. On it, great wisdom from Samuel Johnson.

"Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome."

So true. If we try to imagine all the obstacles, we will never get off the couch. Let's say we are considering a bold move to a new exercise class. And we are sitting looking at the schedule online. And then our brain weighs in as follows: "It might be too hard. It might be full. It might be too expensive. I don't know if I will like it. What if I like it but can't make it every week? What if people are mean to me? What if I feel stupid? What if my workout clothes don't fit? What if I have to work late?"

Wow. So many reasons not to try. Are any of them good ones? Not really.

So if you find yourself stalking wellness and change, you internet predator you, get on out there and give it a go. Commit to ONE CLASS. That's it.

Here are links to the best in Cincinnati. And if you write me, I'll try to find you the best places in your hometown. I've got people, you know.
